World Cup striker Kennet Andersson has become the latest star to say NO to Rangers.

The Ibrox club had agreed a fee of around pounds 2million with relegated Italian Serie A outfit Bari for the powerful 28- year-old.

But he has refused to go, saying: "I am not interested in playing in Scotland. I would prefer to stay in Italy."

Now, the powerful Swede - who scored five goals as Sweden grabbed third place in the 1994 World Cup tournament in the United States - is hanging on for a possible move to Serie A champions AC Milan or cup holders Fiorentina.

It's another blow to Scottish champs Rangers who have already failed in high- profile bids to sign Ulf Kirsten and Gianluca Vialli in recent months.

However, their big-money move for Portuguese defender Fernando Couto is still a possibility.

Meanwhile, Bruce Rioch's Arsenal look set to provide the opposition for Ibrox skipper Richard Gough's benefit match.

The former Spurs star's testimonial committee will make an announcement today.
